The 8 Best Vegan Skincare Brands to Add to Your Skincare Routine
Veganism doesn’t only apply to food; the lifestyle choice can extend to your beauty routine as well. While there are a lot of products that are formulated with animal-derived ingredients or by-products on shelves, there’s an increasing number of options that are vegan and cruelty-free, especially in the skincare space — you just need to know where to look. From a dry skin-friendly cleanser to luminizing sunscreen, we’re sharing seven vegan skincare products that’ll overhaul your daily routine.

Vegan Cleanser: Garnier Green Labs Amino-Berry Ultra Soothing Cream Cleanser

In addition to removing makeup and impurities, this gentle cleanser leaves skin feeling soothed and hydrated thanks to amino acids and a superberry blend. It’s perfect for winter or for dry skin year-round. The non-stripping vegan formula is also free of sulfates, parabens and dyes.

Vegan Toner: Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Facial Mist

A toner helps balance the pH of skin, minimizes the look of pores with just a spritz or two. With rose water and aloe leaf juice, this formula also helps hydrate and reduce the appearance of redness and inflammation. In addition to the skin-loving formula, the mist made our list because all Thayers products are vegan and cruelty-free.

Vegan Exfoliator: Kaike Marshmallow Clay Mask + Scrub

Kaike is a Black-owned, vegan skincare brand that takes a less-is-more approach to beauty. We love this multitasking product because it contains just three ingredients and can be used as a healing mask or a gentle, exfoliating scrub.

Vegan Serum: Garnier Green Labs Hyalu-Aloe Hydrating Serum Gel

Another must-have multitasker is this all-new serum gel from Garnier. It’s a lightweight moisturizer, hyaluronic acid serum and eye cream in one. With this vegan product in your arsenal, your morning routine will be short and sweet.

In addition to broad-spectrum sun protection, this formula doubles as a makeup primer and gives skin an instant glow. The vegan sunscreen is also free of oxybenzone, phthalates, sulfates and over 50 other potentially harmful or sensitizing ingredients.

Vegan Primer: NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Hydrating Jelly Primer

This primer has a touchable, jelly-like texture that creates a moisturized matte barrier for a smooth makeup application. Plus, it’s infused with cucumber and aloe extracts. If you're looking to follow this up with vegan makeup, we suggest checking out more products from NYX’s Bare With Me collection.
